TECHNICAL INFORMATION

See the Technical Information section of the NES version of Super Contra.

-The games featured on the Playchoice-10 cabinet are modified NES ROMs. They are run on the arcade’s hardware that essentially emulates the NES. The ROM of the NES version of Super Contra (NTSC-U) is one such example. The data is larger in size compared to the retail releases due to additional code at the end of the ROMs that is responsible for displaying the arcade’s timer.

-Like most arcade games of its time, Super C includes numerous DIP switches that can be set to various configurations to alter the gameplay. The switches set the following parameters:

Units of time (Coin A/Coin B): How many units of time are provided per coin (player 1/player 2). Options include:
